I'm assuming they will play both -Human and No Leaf Clover, just because they were written specifically to be played with an orchestra.

That's pretty cool and reactive to what people were bitching about.

Super cool.

I'm a member of the fan club, maybe I'll have a shot at a ticket...

Funny that this thread is being bumped - I just saw Metallica last night  :metal

Monday sunny, Tuesday sunny, today sunny, yesterday rainy... screw my life. But a coworker that was meant to come with me got sick and she couldn't come - I guess that puts things into perspective.

It was a different way to experience a concert in the end - all wrapped up in antirain coats, no photos (but people had phones out anyway, at least for half a gig it didn't rain), a very dramatic atmosphere. I mean, I never ever want to stand in the rain again during a big concert, but it's something to tell about.

Also, it was the most MASSIVE concert I've seen. I've seen Iron Maiden and I've seen them in the same venue but the crowd was insanely big and we were all so pressed, and the stage set is the biggest I've ever seen. Bigger than the Big 4 tour, it was just gigantic.

This is the setlist - AFTER THE LINK I'LL DISCUSS SOME OF THE SONGS SO IF YOU DON'T WANT SPOILER SKIP THE REST OF THE POST.






https://www.setlist.fm/setlist/metallica/2019/ippodromo-del-galoppo-di-san-siro-milan-italy-2390f4af.html



All in all a good setlist, they change some songs here and there from show to show but the bulk is the same. I read online that they played Frantic, I'm glad I got St. Anger instead, the best song of that absymal album.  And hey, look at how they "apologized" for playing a St. Anger song - the four lethal attack of One + Master + Bells + Creeping Death was mindblowingly awesome  :metal

Creeping Death was apocalpytic - all red images on the maxi screens, and it was raining... wonderful experience!

I welcome setlist changes and I'm so, so glad that I got to hear Halo on Fire, but Lords of Summer as first encore? really? a b-side I bet not all people knew? it's the start of the encore, just take advantage of it and start with a song with an intro, such as Battery, Blackened, Fight Fire with Fire or, dunno, literally anything else. I mean, Ride the Lightning and Disposable Heroes get rotated between shows, but Lords of Summer is the fixed first encore. The hell.

Aside from that, great shows, I've seen many complaints online already but I didn't notice any big mistakes, just some double bass missing during One. James was good, some songs he was struggling a bit but all in all he gave a very good performance.

Also Ghost as openers were the icing on the cake, great energetic show from them, it makes up for not seeing them as headliners on this tour!

Awesome!  I love that they rotate songs in and out, and continually dig fairly deep into the vault for different songs to play. 

I've been watching the Seattle '89 and San Diego '92 DVD's a lot, after not having seen them for years.  That will always be 'my' Metallica, having gotten into them in 1991 or 1992.  They were absolutely ferocious back then, and I'm glad that they're still an amazing live band now.

Indeed! I would have never imagined that The God that Failed could have been in the set, but it's a nice grooving song and it came out really well. Also I got lucky in hearing The Memory Remains (didn't hear it at my previous 2011 concert) and especially Halo on Fire, they're not staples of the set.

Some songs also had different intros, such as The Unforgiven, and they tackled a fast and speedy reprise of the melody of The Memory Remains after the end rather than just finishing with the dadada part played by Kirk alone. And for the "let's play a song from the nation we're in" part of the show we got a kickass song (named El Diablo) from a great rock band, Litfiba, which was an excellent surprise. Last time around they played a song from Vasco Rossi who, while being very famous in Italy, is despised by basically everyone who isn't a fan and there was an uproar online  :lol

I didn't even notice it, to give an idea of what a mess it was  :lol (47.500 people present, italian record for Metallica!  :omg: )

But hey, it was raining a lot, it was only statistically possible that someone would slip over something.

I like how they are changing up the setlists, looks like this Euro leg is getting a good rotation of some deeper cuts.  Having said that, I'm not a fan of the song choices for that show last night.  I saw the video of the fall this morning, Kirk himself tweeted it which is pretty cool.  Also it looks like thats pretty much the same set up for the NA tour a couple years ago which was also massive.  Ghost as an opener is a huge + too.  Glad you had fun in the rain.

Thanks! well, given the realistic choices, I'm glad I got St. Anger instead of Frantic, and The Memory Remains. Out of The Thing that Should Not Be, The God that Failed and Disposable Heroes I would have loved this last one, but at least they played Ride the Lightning which my cousin loved and she never saw Metallica until yesterday, so I'm glad for her that  she got her favorite song at the very first attempt.

As I said my only complaint is about Lords of Summer... a b-side being 1) a staple 2) a mainstay of every gig is baffling. Other than that, being this my second Metallica gig ever in 8 years, I'm just happy to have gotten all in all a solid show  :D

I'm not a fan of LoS being an encore staple either.  I liked when they would rotate 80s album intros for the first encore song.  I got Blackened last fall and Fight Fire With Fire a couple years ago, I thought those were good choices.  LoS is just not even that good of a song IMO.  It's not bad, but it's more mid set type of song if they are going to play it IMO.

Yeah exactly! if at all, play it in the middle in place of St. Anger... everyone knows there's gonna be an encore, you're not fooling anyone, might as well take the chance and use a song that as an intro, to have the feel of the show restarting - I was bracing myself for exactly what you said, Blackened or Fight Fire with Fire, but no. Weird choice indeed.

I know this seems completely insane...but would you believe that I went to BOTH nights that they recorded for that Seattle show........and I've still never watched it?     I never even owned Binge and Purge until a couple years ago when I inherited a VHS version from a friend who passed away.   But who watches VHS any more?  I'd have to find a player in a closet.

Nooo please no. I might be the only one here with that opinion... but I absolutely love the St. Anger album. Including the snare drum! (not kidding)

I loathe St. Anger, but I have to admit the title track is good and hearing it live it was cool. Especially WITHOUT the snare drum sound  ;D

I will always maintain that there are some killer riffs and in general just really solid raw materials on St. Anger. The songs just needed some more TLC as far as writing/editing, and obviously the production values are a shitshow.

The Unnamed Feeling is actually pretty good, even if it needs to be edited.

Honestly, if the album was edited quite a bit and given a re-recording, it wouldn't be bad.

and I wouldn't want the re-recording to have great sound. I think the bad raw sound added to the message of the album. I just think the writing needs a bit of a refinement.

But who watches VHS any more?  I'd have to find a player in a closet.

I have a VCR hooked up to my TV, and I still have a bunch of VHS tapes.  In the music category, they're things that either didn't get re-released on DVD or which I never got around to replacing.  The tape that I watch most frequently is this:



Never got re-released on DVD.

And, since this is a Metallica thread, I also still have this tape:
